Always being in touch with the latest trends, Gargazon inaugurated its new Natural Swimming Pool of Gargazon comprising 12,000 m² on May 29th, 2010. It is the first public bath in the Western part of the country that does without any chemical water treatment. Instead the natural water landscape is divided into a natural bathing area and an ecologically untouched regeneration zone that purifies the waters with the help of a number of beautiful plants. The shower water is exclusively heated by solar collectors, yet another advantage of this ecological concept. The fact that the natural swimming pool is easily reachable on foot and by bike accords with the concept's principle of sustainability. Children can splash in the naturally established brook, complete with wading pool, and there is an area for non-swimmers (max. depth: 1.20 m) which is accessible through a fine pebble beach. Not to mention, there is a grass play area with beach volleyball courts, table tennis, table soccer, loungers, umbrellas, picnic tables and wooden platforms that are ideal for playing, relaxing and having fun with the whole family.
